Full Debate Replay

Here is last night's first debate in full:

This explains why Trump isn't a viable candidate.

There is no question Hillary Clinton will be the next president of the United States. There never was any question of it. If the GOP were serious about this election, they would have picked John Kasich, who would have posed a challenge.

This debate illustrates WHY somebody off the street CANNOT be a viable candidate for the most powerful job in the world. You cannot do like Trump and run on a major party ticket without going through the "farm system" of elected office. NO presidential candidate of a major party has ever been a nominee in this history of this country without elected political experience or high-ranking military, as a general, with latter having been the case only once since the 19th century, and that was with Ike. Candidates like HRC or Ronald Reagan can short-circuit the farm system somewhat based on name recognition, but the usual route to the presidency is local/state office, then national office like representative/Senate or governor.

Trump is completely in over his head. That is because he cannot talk policy since he has not ever been in government. He should not win a single state. He should lose at least as badly as Alf Landon did in 1936. The only reason anybody would vote for this doofus is sexism.
